Call in to speak with the host
Just before Jesus was crucified, He taught His disciples about Last Things-what would happen right before He would return to the Earth. Matthew 24 describes the events leading up to that time. Then in chapter 25, Jesus presents three parables to describe what the times would be like when He returns to gather His people.
The faithful in Christ are compared to three kinds of people- wise virgins prepared for the return of the bridegroom, servants entrusted with their master's talents, and sheep who are separated from the goats at the end of the day.
Once to Die, Then the Judgment - Hollywood makes every attempt to convince us all that everyone, regardless of how they lived, will have blessings, rest, and peace after they die. They depict unbelievers as guardian angels who return to watch over their loved ones, however tat concept contradicts the Word of God. hebrews 9:27 reads, "And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment."
We do not become angels. We are not reincarnated. When we die, we are judged for the deeds done in our bodies, our decision regarding Christ, and we either go into the presence of God or we go into everlasting judgment. All of today's stories contain a common theme - that people will be held accountable one day. These parables are pictures of God's judgment that brings either reward or punishment and no one will escape.
